You may not be likely to hear EMA on Top 40 radio, but that doesn't make her an unknown. She's all the rage in the blogosphere and in respected music publications like Rolling Stone, Spin, and Pitchfork. For once, the critical adoration is not misplaced: EMA is a musician for listeners who consume music at a deeper level. Pay attention to the lyrics on her latest album, The Future's Void ($10) and you'll hear a modern poet in action.
